Parafed BOP started developing a Youth Programme in 2018. The intentions of this group is to give the opportunity for youth aged 8-21yrs to meet on a regular basis and enjoy some time playing sport and games together.

The ultimate pinnacle for the youth in this programme is the HALBERG Games hosted by the Halberg Foundation once a year.  This is a great three-day event where kids can compete in the sports they love and meet others from around the country. For more info visit  Halberg Games

There are other opportunities, including inclusive sport activities in school, clubs or community events.e.g Para sports included in AIMs Games for yr 7 and 8's

f you or anyone you know are interested in this programme please get in touch with us.
